DSR-150N wireless cannot connect to internet
« on: February 14, 2016, 04:51:40 PM »

DSR-150N Ver.A2
Firmware 1.09b32_ww

I just bought the new router and got it set up. I am able to get online just fine through a wired connection. My wireless devices can connect to the router and log in using the set password without any issue but from there I cannot get them to go online. This problem is universal across two laptops, 2 kindles and an ipad. I piggybacked my old linksys in through the Dlink and I can still go online when connecting to the linksys (which is connected to the Dlink and not directly to the modem) so I am pretty sure there is just a setting somewhere that I am missing in the Dlink.

The Dlink certainly offers more power and options than I had with my linksys but also seems a bit more complex to set up, which is expected for something with more horsepower of course. Sadly it seems to be a bit out of my depth as a casual user to get the wireless up and running correctly. Any help or insight here would be most appreciated.

Link>Welcome!

  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion and Good Neighbour Policy
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Can be anything and not something that's already in use by any neighbouring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • What wireless modes are you using?
  • Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N?
  • Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear. 13 for EU regions.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto TPIK and AES.
  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by that maybe causing interferences?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use a WiFi Scanner to find out. How many?
  • If you have any of these options, Try turning OFF or ON Short GI, WLAN Partition, Extra Wireless Protection and HT 20/40 Co-existence if you have it. Also testing with HT20/40Mhz Co-existence enabled will impact results as well. I prefer to use this option OFF. Recommended settings are default. Under Advanced/Advanced Wireless.

Region: Idaho, United States
ISP Time Warner Cable
SURFboard SB5101 modem

I have a few downloads running right now and the connection was dropping every time I tried to tinker with the settings you listed there even though it is a wired connection. I will try those suggestions tomorrow when I don't have anything queued up, thank you for the response!
